Indian Classical Dance

 

Indian Classical DanceThe Himalayan Yoga Institute also offers Indian classical dance classes and workshops conducted by a teacher who has professionally performed and taught worldwide for many years.

No other technique or dance form has given so much attention to gesture as has Indian classical dance. Spiritually, psychologically and visually, each gesture is thought out to the minutest detail.

Bharata Natyam is one of the six styles of Indian Classical Dance. It originated in the temple art of South India and used to be performed as an expression of worship and devotion to the Divine. It was brought to the secular stage in the 20th century and has gained great popularity all over the world in the last few decades. It involves both abstract and mimic dance. The abstract or “pure” dance is characterized by clarity and symmetrical precision. The rhythmic variations and intricate dance patterns are ornamented with graceful poses and hand gestures. The mimic dance uses a highly stylized gesture language, while using the hands and facial expression as important tools in expressing subtle emotions.
